Honoring the Future® : We harness the power of art to educate, empower, and engage the public on climate change. Our art exhibitions and programs spark conversation and inspire action to create a climate smart world. Since 2015, we have sponsored an annual Sustainability Award at the Smithsonian Women’s Craft Show to recognize artists whose work “educates the public about climate change or inspires or models a sustainable response to climate change.” We are delighted to see that award program blossom into Craft Optimism. We hope the talent and creativity on display here move every craft show visitor to ask: how can I use my passions and talents to solve our climate challenge?
